What is ClingZ?
It’s a patented electrically charged plastic film that adheres to indoor surfaces without adhesive. You can write on it, erase it, and write on it again and again. It adheres to any indoor surface, and many outdoor surfaces such as wood, metal and brick. ClingZ never leaves a residue. Best of all, because ClingZ is repositionable, it can be used over and over again – until you’re ready to throw it away. And then, it’s good to know it’s recyclable.
Take a look at this ClingZ video on YouTube to learn more about what this signage product can do for you!
Miles POP ClingZ “peel and place anywhere” film can be printed by Miles quickly (usually within 7 to 15 days), and has many uses, including:
- Point of purchase
- Event marketing
- Photo products
- Magazine inserts
- Temporary signage
- School & corporate
We like to say ClingZ is charged with possibilities!

Established as a nonprofit organization in 2000, Women & Hi Tech was created to address the specific needs of women in high tech industries in Central Indiana and to develop, support, attract, and encourage more women to consider careers in technology.
In part because we are a state certified Woman-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE), Miles POP is an active member of Women & Hi Tech. We enjoy taking a leadership role in encouraging young women to pursue studies in science, engineering, health care, information systems, computer science and other established and emerging technologies, starting in grade school and continuing through their professional careers.
One of the ways Miles POP gives back to Women & Hi Tech is to sponsor the 2010 Leading Light Awards, the yearly recognition and awards program of the organization. The Leading Light Awards honors women of achievement in science, education, and technology while shining a bright spotlight on nominees, winners, and finalists. The Leading Light Awards honors more than 400 of Indiana’s most influential business and technology leaders.
This year, Miles POP printed the signage for the 2010 Leading Light Award Gala. We are honored to help encourage women of all ages towards the “leading light” of technology.Tweet
Miles POP, a certified minority-owned printer, has a client that designed an interactive brochure for use as a learning tool for diabetes patients. We took an immediate interest in this creative concept because we could see how valuable this educational piece could be to those newly diagnosed with diabetes.
The premise of the brochure was simple. It opened to feature a life-sized open hand, encircled by common food items illustrated with correct portion sizes. These foods were to be printed as cut-outs made of static cling material so they would “peel and stick” to the open hand, giving an instant understanding of correct diabetic portion control.
Originally, our client requested that we print the food item decals as die cut static clings on a high gloss board. We agreed that the brochure board should be UV printed with a high gloss UV coating. But our experience has proven that after only a couple of uses, the requested peel and stick decals lost the ability to be reapplied due to common contaminants such as lint, hand oils, etc. Unsatisfied with this option, Miles went back to the drawing board to test other types of vinyl and plastics for the die cut decals.
Miles is pleased to consult with clients and to pre-test the materials used in any type of project because it often means the difference between a project that really works and one that just looks nice. In our finished brochure, the food decals are UV printed on low tack vinyl and custom die cut into various shapes.
When the decals are applied to the brochure, no matter how many times, they stick — which also means that the message to diabetes patients has a better chance “to stick.” It’s the way we prefer to work.Tweet
